We live in Florida where we are very vulnerable of hurricane to hit our state, for that reason you need to prepare your garage doors from powerful winds of a hurricane.
Miami weather center already predicted a busy 2012 hurricane season: Three of 2012 year's hurricanes are expected to be "major," with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour, with Category 3 or greater status on the Saffir-Simpson intensity scale, Weather Services International (WSI) said in its early pre-season forecast. With these in mind I highly recommend to call a garage door expert in your area and have your garage door ready for the upcoming hurricane season.
Just a small investment of calling your garage door service expert will save you a lot of money in the long run.
